Rear-End Collisions

Recovering Damages in Rear-End Collisions

Rear-end collisions are common on Texas roadways. High traffic volumes combined with driver errors can cause collisions and injuries. Sometimes, the issue is speed or a poorly maintained vehicle. Other times it is due to driver fatigue or some distraction inside the vehicle’s cabin.

Whatever the cause, rear-end collisions are preventable and happen due to negligence.

San Antonio Rear-End Collision Attorney

Rear-end collisions can happen in both rural and urban areas but are most frequent where there is heavy traffic congestion. Interstates I-35W, I-820 and I-20 near Dallas-Fort Worth and the I-10, I-410 and I-37 in San Antonio are home to hundreds of rear-end collisions each year.

If you or someone you love was injured in a rear-end accident, we can assist you in recovering damages for your medical bills, lost wages, disability and other losses related to a:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Head or neck injury
  • Back injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Burn or scar
  • Radiating pain due to whiplash
  • Bone fracture
  • Muscle, ligament and tendon injury

We have experience in getting damages from both underinsured and uninsured motorists. If a loved one died as a result of a rear-end collision injury, we can seek survivor’s damages through a wrongful death lawsuit.

Who Is at Fault? It Depends on Circumstances

When vehicles collide in a rear-end accident, the motorist who struck from behind is often automatically assumed to be at fault. This can be especially true in situations in which a driver was following too closely.

Aggressive drivers can be held accountable when they cause rear-end accidents by swerving in front of other motorists at an unsafe distance or by intentionally causing a collision by braking in front of an approaching vehicle.

Every collision is different. Hire us, and we will take the time investigate the evidence behind your claims, meet with witnesses and collect accident reports and medical reports. We will work with accident reconstruction experts to prove your claims and secure a recovery for you.

Commercial Vehicles, Multiple Collisions

In cases of injury by a commercial vehicle such as a semi-truck or delivery truck, we can pursue claims against the driver, as well as his/her employer or the owner of the vehicle, as is applicable. When multiple motorists are involved in a multi-vehicle collision, we can help sort out fact from fiction to make sure you neither pay too much nor receive too little as a result.
